Serving 39 million drinks and 21 million meals a year, Toby Carvery can justifiably call themselves "The Home of the Roast."
With 158 restaurants from Glasgow to Great Yarmouth, the chain of restaurants has been serving hungry customers for 30 years. Whilst experts in roast pork, Yorkshire pudding and brussel sprouts, the Toby chain left the technology requirements to Airwave.
Looking for a cost-effective signage system as a vehicle for special offers and advertising, Toby Carvery opted for Philips' Q-Line Series of signage displays.
The Q-Line Series features an integrated HTML5 browser, SmartControl (enabling remote management of displays) and SmartCMS, a free and easy-to-use content management and scheduler tool. The Q-Line's SmartPower energy-saving functionality enables Toby Carvery to save considerably on ongoing electricity costs.
Airwave supplied 283 Q-Line displays and BTech ultra-slim wall mounts alongside various cabling infrastructure to support the differing mount requirements at each restaurant.
In addition to the install of two displays behind each carvery counter, Airwave also provided displays for the “bookable spaces” in the restaurant. These spaces are offered to groups wishing to share personal content on the signage display - very often a straightforward slideshow of photos over a USB stick or DVD.
"Toby Carvery wanted a cost-effective system and a quick and easy method of dealing with the displays in the unlikely event of failure; the Q-Line Series and Philips' de-rig - reinstall policy ticked all the right boxes" said signage expert, Charles Mupfurutsa.
